2 Corinthians 4:17-18 NIV
Maybe it is growing that ministry, raising small children or being faithful in what seems like the mundane. Wherever you find your current reality, your focus will determine the outcome. In this verse the Apostle Paul challenges us to set our hearts, sights and mind on what is not clearly visible to the human eye. Not for our own temporary good or gain, but for His glory and that which is eternal. When we set our eyes on things that are unseen, we open them to the supernatural.
Fixing Our Eyes on the Unseen
Do you have a life verse? So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. Romans ,25 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? Hebrews , Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen…. Matthew And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. Leviticus ,26 And the fat of the sin offering shall he burn upon the altar…. New International Version So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.
